Summary

‘Brilliant, thought-provoking and original.’ BookTrust
‘Stunning . . . an original and fascinating book!’ Evie, aged 9, Toppsta

Go on an amazing journey around the world to discover how animals, plants and microscopic organisms develop fascinating friendships to survive and thrive.

Did you know pom pom crabs wear sea anemones as boxing gloves to fight off enemies?

And greater honeybirds guide humans to hidden beehives?

And bats use pitcher plants as sleeping bags?

From ravens and wolves to trees and fungi, learn how these unlikely alliances are formed and find out all the incredible, funny, weird and disgusting reasons why these partnerships work.

Every page is beautifully illustrated and packed full of facts that should surprise and inspire us all to overcome our differences and work together more.

Critic Reviews

Presented in a large, full colour hardback, this lovely, thought-provoking, and original book explores an interesting concept within nature. This would be a lovely addition to a school or home library, and introduces the idea of cooperation in nature in an accessible and interesting way. Hyndman’s illustration hits just the right balance of realistic and beautiful.
